Opportunity for our members
There’s no need to go abroad for a real Christmas market this year – there’s a fabulous choice right here at home in Sligo. The compact nature of the county allows visitors to visit several markets over a weekend and really soak up the atmosphere. Music spills from the rafters, fairy lights twinkle overhead and the scents of Christmas waft through the air. Delicious foodie treats – sea veg, chocolately nibbles, breads, cheeses and dips, craft beer, sushi - compete for attention with gorgeously handcrafted gifts. You’ll find Sligo Food Trail members at all the markets and some, like Murson’s Farm, take a stand at several.
